On Sunday, Senator Ledama Ole Kina of Narok asserted that Speaker Moses Wetangula of the National Assembly had removed his name from the Presidential Honors List.
Ole Kina clarified in a statement that he was one of the chosen leaders waiting to be honored by President William Ruto on December 12 at Jamhuri Day festivities.
Wetang’ula, according to Ledama, took his name off the list because of their tense relationship with the Kenya Kwanza government, as the Narok Senator put it.
The Senator claimed, “He has taken my name off the honors list for the second time.”
“I am honored by the Kenyan people for my dexterity and commitment to serve. You can deny me my rights with all of your “powers,” but you can never break my spirit.
It is anticipated that President William Ruto would honor fifty Kenyans for their outstanding contributions to the nation. On 12 December.
President Ruto is scheduled to present several Kenyans with awards, including Chief of the Order of the Burning Spear (CBS), Elder of the Order of the Golden Heart (EGH), and Moran of the Order of the Golden Heart (MGH) (OGW).
Political figures from the Kenya Kwanza and Azimio coalitions predominate on the list.
Ledama had anticipated receiving accolades from opposition leaders such as Senators Edwin Sifuna (Nairobi) and Moses Kajwang (Homa Bay), Opiyo Wandayi (Minority Leader of the National Assembly), and Stewart Madzayo (Minority Leader of the Senate).
Ledama’s relationship with the Kenya Kwanza government has been tense ever since he attempted to thwart Ruto’s election at the August 15 Bomas of Kenya.
